Cincinnati BMW Scheduled Maintenance Explained

We tell our Cincinnati customers all the time — if you want to get the most value from your BMW, follow the scheduled maintenance like clockwork. Get the oil changed every 5,000 miles. Check the brakes before they’ve worn down to the rotors. Once they’ve started to grind, it’s too late. Change the timing belt every 80,000 miles. Otherwise, you risk ruining the engine if it snaps. Your radiator should be flushed every winter. This helps to clean out the contaminants to keep it running in top working order. Have your brake fluid checked. Theoretically, brake fluid doesn’t wear out but can become contaminated through leaks in your brake system and components. If the fluid is a light brown, it’s fine — anything darker and it might need to be changed.
